This mica was the star of my latest CP batch! I've used it before with gorgeous results, but for this project, I needed a bold, rich, sultry, deep plumb color & didn't have one on hand. Hmmmm... What to do? I blended this Orchid mica with Nurture's "My Red Obsession" mica (just a touch more "Orchid" than "Red Obsession"), and the results were jaw dropping!!! Absolutely ROYAL looking, and in CP... WOWZA!!! This mica has always been a staple color in my collection (and always will be!), but I was just floored by how beautifully it blended to make an exquisite customizable color as well! This just opened up a whole world of new possibilities for me, and next I think I'll try blending it with Nurture's "Silver Mist" mica next! Its multifaceted hue makes it breathtaking on its own, but also allows for some seriously awesome blending possibilities & I intend to explore that further with this color! As always, Nurture doesn't disappoint with their extraordinary selection of top-notch, high quality micas! I buy ALL my micas from Nurture, as this is the one company where all my colors consistently turn out excellent in every batch of soap I make! I've never been disappointed! THANK YOU NURTURE!
